The Road to Liberation - 25th January 1941


Good morning everyone


The countdown to reopening has started and we hope to be operating again late next week. But it's fair to say that COVID has not stopped us working digitally and we will be continuing the online education sessions via zoom, twitch & TikTok and the blog is not going anywhere.


Have a fantastic day!

thanks

Phil
